Probably because they concatinate the name string. When you name you ship they combine the name with USS. Something like string x = concat ("USS ", "Yourname"). Then they store it as a single string in the database.

To fix that they would have to change the database. Then break out the existing ship names in that database. Then modify all the code in system especially the database queries. Once they got the data from the changes properly displaying then they could add the new code to allow you to choose what you want.

Wouldn't that be nice? That and the purple nacelles. I've got one character that's from the Terran Empire (though definitely against O'Brien and the rest of the brain trust there), it'd fit in with her story.
